Site Use Reports?

  Asked By: Virginia    Date: May 18    Category: MOSS    Views: 774

Supposedly in MOSS 2007, there is a way to monitor site usage and get
an alert when a certain site (web) hasn't been used in x days..
Is this an oob function or is this custom?
How does one set this up?
I thought this was standard in SPS 2003..is this deprecated?

This is a misunderstood capability. It didn't actually exist in SPS 2003 nor
does it exist in 2007. There is a feature in both called Dead Web Cleanup. It
sends a reminder email to the site  collection owner after 90 days asking if the
Site Collection is still being used and asking them to confirm that it shouldn't
be deleted. It goes to every site owner, not just site collections that haven't
been used. Although SharePoint has reports  on usage it doesn't have a way of
determining a site that hasn't been used at all.

Does this feature need to be turned on, or is it on automatically?
Is it set a the site  level or web level?

You'll see it in Site Settings->Site Administration. However, you will need
to enable Usage Logging (farm-level, CA->Operations->Logging and Reporting)
and Usage Processing (at the SSP level).

Site usage reporting stats needs to be turned on both in Central Administration
and the associated SSP. The notice that Paul is talking about is also enabled in
Central Administration but I can't recommend its use.
